My Time To Craft 'Clean & Simple' Challenge

Good morning everyone, well the weather is certainly better here so I hope it is better where you are. Another week has past so quickly, it will be Christmas before we know it lol.

This week at My Time To Craft we have set the challenge as 'Clean & Simple', so that means minimum amount of embellishments and lots of white space on the card. 

I stamped my image of Sweet 'n' Sassy by Elisabeth Bell straight onto my card blank which I had already cut out the border onto using my Spellbinder Edgeabilities dies. I coloured my image with Promarkers & Flexmarkers but unfortunately shading was a little difficult on this card. Then added a couple of sentiments and a strip of gems. That's it, job done although I still wanted to add more but I don't consider myself a crafter who uses lots and lots of embellishments. I think it is because there is no backing paper.

6" Square Card Blank - Boyes
Gems - Dovecraft

Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-
Skin - Coral, Sunkissed Pink & Putty
Hair - Cocoa & Cinnamon
Hat & Trousers - Tan, March Hare & Light Fawn
Top, Belt & Hair Bows - Pink Lobster, Shocking Pink & Frosted Pink
Leaves - Leaf Green & Green Shoot
Flowers - Yellow, Lemon & Ivory

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Dutch Dare - Birthday Fun
Addicted To Stamps & More - Clean & Simple
Divas By Design - Spring Colours
Elphine House - Punch It
Simon Says Stamp - Happy Birthday
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
A Little Bit Crafty - Anything Goes

That's all from me today. I should have my Crafty Calendar Challenge card for you today but unfortunately time has evaded me this week, I lost a day lol. I will hopefully have it ready either later today or tomorrow so see you soon.
